We received this Eddie Bauer carseat as a hand-me-down from a friend after my son destroyed our previous car seat by pulling all of the Styrofoam padding off it while I had the cover in the washer. 

We've been using it for a short time and have come to find it has it's pro's & con's. 

We installed the seat forward facing and the install was very quick and easy. Adjusting the straps to the proper height was also fairly easy, but loosening them was not. They were difficult to pull out the first few times, but after a few tries it became easier. 

The dark color of the seat is great for hiding messes and it is easy to remove for cleaning. While my friend had only used the seat for about 2 years before passing it on to us, the elastic on both the seat cover & the side pockets was stretched out. It's still very useable, but not as nice to look at. 

The adjustable headrest is a great feature, but not very easy to use. I often have to stick my hand behind the seat & push the headrest out from behind to be able to get it to move. 

I've checked prices on this seat and while it does seem pricey, it looks as if it will transition into a booster seat nicely, saving us from having to purchase another seat in a few years.

We purchased this for our oldest daughter 4 years ago thinking it would be the best and it is not. It's adequit but pales in comparisson to our Graco. The headrest pushes the babies head forward and provides absolutely no support once they fall asleep and it can't be removed. I don't like the way it reclines either. It takes up way to much space in the car when rear facing. The seat in front of it couldn't be reclined at all and made long trips miserable. It also has a holder for the seat belt for when it's converted to a booster seat and it has sharp edges and I've scraped my arm on it several time reaching past it. It doeshave a cup holder but it doesn't stay on. Our daughter kept pulling it off and we eventually lost it. It has two mesh pockets, one on each side. But, I'm not really sure of their purpose. They are not easy for a small child to get anything in or out of them and out of reach for a parent in the front seat. The carseat has kept 2 of our children safe and serves it's purpose but it's not worth the price because it's features are aren't helpful.

Good carseat at a good price

By 

from Fresno, CA

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

We've used this carseat since the baby outgrew his infant car seat.  We started it rear facing and have used it for almost 2 years forward facing.  It's comfortable for him on long rides and the straps adjust easily for when we add layers or a coat.  I would recommend it.

Great long term use

By 

from Lawrenceville, GA

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

I swear by these car seats. Our family now owns 4 for 2 kids. Once they left the infant car seat we made our first eddie bauer purchase. It was quickly followed by another for my husbands car. And then when my son came along I knew I wanted two more (my car and my hubby's car.) This seat will now last us through the booster stage. There is plenty of room in the seat for the child to fit comfortably yet still be secure. We have taken many trips to FL ( we are in GA) and the kids never complain about the seat not being comfortable. The car seat is easy to adjust. There are the straps themselves and the head height.

 

My only complaint is not really a complaint. I have 2 kids and with easy my children's car seats fit in the back and a skinny butt person too. However with the cup holder I had to borrow a friends skinny car seat to fit a third while I tempoarily drove a friends child to daycare. But these seats are no way as wide as the britax.

Safety first

By 

from Crestview, FL

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

Well i don't have anything else to compare this to, cause when it comes to car seats and anything that has to do with the kids safety, then we always try to find the best.

Only think i can tell you about this car seat is that its awesome, it fits easy from either car, takes a little time to move it over with the 2 extra safety straps.

Its pretty versible right now, can adjust safety straps with one hand.

And the insert is very easy to clean, just undo the ties and throw it in the wash, and air dry, I have seen a few other seats where you couldn't remove all the fabric from the seat, that would never work for me, we have issues with pouring drinks out on purpose.

Only downside i would say i've seen in the amount of time we have had it is that you can't seem to adjust the straps individually, cause for some reason the little one likes to lean left and so one strap is tighter than the other, but he still can't lean far enough to free himself so all good.

This is a pretty nice car seat!!

By 

from Abingdon, IL

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

My daughter grew out of her infant car seat when she was about 3 months old, so my grandmother got her a new car seat for Christmas and it happened to be the Eddie Bauer Astoria Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat!  This is a very nice looking car seat and it seems to be a very trusted brand also.  It's fairly easy to buckle into the car, which is nice since we ride places with other people from time to time.  Also, it comes with a bunch of accessories, my favorite being the cup holder!  The only problem I really have with it is that it's hard to adjust the straps and that I can't buckle the part between her legs because she's too big and it bruises her legs, even at it's farthest distance from her legs.  At 11 months old, she needs to be able to have that strapped on right.  I'm very glad that it's convertible, though, so we don't have to spend money to get another car seat once she gets a little bit older.  I like this car seat a lot, but there's a few adjustments I'd make if I could!!

Great for front facing/rear facing a challenge

By 

from Virginia Beach, VA

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

This was our second convertible car seat that we tried.  When we had our daughter rear facing it was a real challenge to get it installed correctly.  I will say it might have been the way our seats slant (we have an Acura MDX if that helps someone out there).  When we first installed it our daughter was hunched way over and screamed because she was uncomfortable.  We took the seat to the fire station because we could not figure it out and they put a pool noodle duct taped it together and wedged it under the seat.  They said because the seat slanted down there was no other way to install it correctly and they do it all the time.  (apparently this is common?).  Once we switched her around to forward facing it no longer needed the noodle and sat great.  I would recommend this for a forward facing child but it was a little scary to me that it needed to be jimmy rigged to sit properly.  Seems like it should come with some sort of base that clicks in and props them up correctly.  I know my infant carrier had that.  Straps do get twisted ALL the time and the red button between the legs is really hard to press and release the child.

My grand daughter is very safe!

By 

from Smyrna, TN

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

This car seat is well worht the money since it is a convertable car seat that really does adjust to a growing baby from birth to 80 pounds. It comes with a head sabalizer witch can be removed and replaced with an attached head rest. It also has a cup holder that attaches to the side. This car seat can be buckeled in or attached with clips to your brackets in ot only is is very fuctional but it also is quite attractive. I've had many people ask what brand it was and commented on how they would also like one like it when they have children.

great and totally safe but a pain in the but to instal or remove

By 

from Everett, WA

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

This carseat was fabulous with my son. At first he was too small because it isnt really made for premies but once he gained enough weight it was wonderful. I know it is safe because it has alot of padding and was difficult to get out of the car. Once installed it doesn't move around.

terrific

By 

from Lake Providence, LA

Comments about Eddie Bauer Enspira Deluxe Convertible Car Seat:

My sister brought me a Eddie Bauer car seat for my new arrival in the family. i'm really enyoying it already because it is such a much needed item for the family to secure the baby while we are traveling to and from to the doctor's offices for his checkups and appointments or just when we are going on family vacations or outings. The eddie Bauer car seat is so flexible and comfortable that when i put the baby in it he always goes right to sleep which makes traveling  enjoyable for the rest of  the family!
